Paris Fly Out Report

While I was participating in the Paris Airport Fly Out, I was reported by ATC for “Taxiing through others”. I looked on the Infinite Flight Website about how to PM controllers to contest/inquire about reports, although I could not find a way to make it work for me. I was taxiing to Runway 27L, and I was situated behind a Royal Air Maroc 737-800 and in front of an Air France Airbus A350-900. An Iberia Airbus A321 was on a separate, intersecting taxiway, but they were holding short of our taxiway, so the Royal Air Maroc 737-800 in front of me proceeded to taxi to the Runway’s hold short line. I followed behind them, maintaining a safe distance with the aircraft, and the Iberia Airbus A321 began to taxi behind me once I was a fair distance in front of them (the Air France Airbus A350-900 waited for the Iberia Airbus A321). I did not realize it, as I was in cockpit view, but the Royal Air Maroc Boeing 737-800 ended up surpassing the hold short line and started to push back. It was then that I realized that they were going to hit me, although the Iberia Airbus A321 was behind me, and I could not push back at all. The Royal Air Maroc Boeing 737-800 then collided with the front of my aircraft and I was instantly reported by ATC.
